2 Chainz is a rapper with a net worth of $4.5 million. Also known by his birth name of Tauheed Epps, or by his earlier stage name Titty Boi, this Southern rapper rose to fame in the early 2000′s as part of the hip hop duo Playaz Circle, and later launched a successful solo career, eventually signing to Def Jam Records.

Playaz Circle

Tauheed Epps was born in 1977 in College Park, Georgia. He formed Playaz Circle in 1997 with his childhood friend Earl Conyers aka Dolla Boy, taking the stage name Titty Boi for himself. During the early 200′s, the two had the good fortune of living in the same College Park apartment building as Ludacris. The three rappers soon became friends, and Ludacris later asked Playaz Circle to join his Disturbing tha Peace record label, under the Def Jam imprint.

Their first Disturbing tha Peace album, 2007′s “Supply & Demand,” was a success, and included the hit single “Duffle Bag Boy.” Their second studio album, “Flight 360: The Takeoff,” came out in 2009, and included the hit single “Big Dawg,” which featured guest verses from southern rap stars Lil Wayne and Birdman.

Solo Career

After the success of Playaz Circle’s first two albums, Epps decided to leave Disturbing tha Peace in order to pursue a solo career, although he remained a member of Playaz Circle. It was at this time that he officially changed his stage name to 2 Chainz. In 2011, he released the solo mixtape “T.R.U. REALigion,” which peaked at number 58 on the US Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.

Based on a T.R.U. Story

The next year, 2 Chainz’ first full-length solo album “Based on a T.R.U. Story” debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart. It was released on the major label Def Jam Records, and included the lead single “No Lie,” which featured Canadian rapper Drake. Since then, 2 Chainz has contributed verses to a number of hit songs for other artists, including Kanye West’s “Mercy” and Nicki Minaj’s “Beez in the Trap.” He has also collaborated with a number of other artists throughout his career, including Future, Meek Mill, French Montana, Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, The Weeknd, The Dream, Wiz Khalifa, ASAP Rocky.
